Warriors Step Out of Time

I had the pleasure recently of presenting a workshop on intuition and my warrior self had to awaken for this one! Over a year ago, I received a woman’s name at another library book conference. She hosts this series monthly at a downtown library. It involves many aspects of spirituality, meditation, intuition, aromatherapy, and more. I was so excited to finally bring more life to this topic.

The date I chose was November 14th. There were others but this one is in my book Spirit and Belief.

That was the last time I saw the Ultimate Warrior on T.V. as part of the Ultimate Maniacs with Randy Savage. Of course I picked this date, how could I not? ๐Ÿ˜‰Well, it took me MUCH longer to get there than expected since tons of traffic congests certain highway exits. Plus, there was a football game that night. Ugh! I really was crunched for time.

When I finally arrived, no parking lot could be seen. Guess libraries that are almost 100 years old only have street parking. Circling around a bit made time pass more quickly as I finally parked in a nearby school lot. I felt like the Ultimate Warrior himself running just to get there! The doors opened and I made it with one minute to spare. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I am not a late person EVER so this was unacceptable to me. Feeling flustered doesn’t do me any good. Once I’d begin, things would move along, right? Somewhat but not so much. This group had little interest in my story of intuition and many just wanted a random checklist. They asked questions such as: “What do you mean about feathers as a sign of following intuition?” “How do you journal?” “What’s a blog?” “Wait, you communicate with someone in spirit?” All questions I wasn’t prepared for or even expecting at all.

I kept my composure and did explain ways to increase intuitive abilities but some just wanted an internet answer that I couldn’t provide. I did my best, shared what works for me, and still remained open to inspiring any way I could. In hindsight, if I had more time I could’ve asked more questions to the group about their expectations that night but it wasn’t meant to be for some. Such a minor challenge compared to many Warrior faced over the years! This event frustrated me for sure but I always like to remain positive. That’s what any warrior must do.

Warrior had so many firsts in his life and this night had many for me. The good aspects ( despite the long drive in traffic) were very exciting. I got to lead a presentation with more present than before, discuss intuition in a new way, and also led a meditation which worked out very well. One man bought my book and wants me to return to discuss being ” a warrior.” That made my night (: I brought along some crystals I love and gave everyone present an angel card to use before meditation. It was just a simple visualization to imagine being in a place you love. I hope it brought them some peace. Such a learning experience for sure…

How do you use your intuition warriors? Do you follow that “gut instinct” like you should. Warrior did and I am too. Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do but I’ll tell you what I told the group. Intuition is what you FEEL and what your heart tells you. It isn’t the logical mind all the time but the emotions. We do need all three– head, heart, and gut and always that balance everyday. Remember that three count warriors!

Some didn’t like my ideas about intuition but you need to focus your energy on what you’d like to try. It isn’t the same for us all. Taking “A Step Out of Time” allowed me to see people that are still uneducated looking for answers. I hope I helped on their journey as they continue. November 14 is special to me in several ways and now I have a new date in time to remember.

The man who bought my book was so positive. ( and not just for that reason!) He wants to explore this more and agreed with me about intuition. It is not truly found in a book, online, or anywhere else but inside YOU. Nobody can give you the answers but yourself. Tips– yes but you run the show. I sign my books with: “May you always follow your intuition.” That is my wish for you. Without me listening to my heart a few years back, I wouldn’t have these opportunities or be writing to you all now. ~~~ Intuition will come, you just have to listen and FEEL. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Firehouse Subs, Songs, and Warrior!

I really wanted a photo of the sub shop but didn’t want to drive by as a stalker so this menu will have to do. ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿ˜ณ What a funny few days this turned out to be so I hope you do some laughing like I did! ๐Ÿคฃ My husband and I ate dinner a few weeks ago at Firehouse Subs and they are always so yummy. Music is playing outside (so cool!!) and the song was: “Heaven is a Place on Earth” by Belinda Carlisle. I love that song especially the lyric about not being afraid anymore…. perfect. Also, have you seen the Progressive commercial with Jamie and his “singing angels” singing this song? It makes me laugh every time as I sing along…

The music inside was totally today’s hits or songs my 12 year old daughter loves but sometimes I know too. Several of them were played in a row and then I hear (OMG moment) “The Warrior” by Scandal. I almost choked on my Diet Coke while remaining calm. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜œ I still was thinking of an elusive Emmy Award that my feelings have earned! What a rarity to hear that song. Then, it hit me differently… First, that song always made me cry but now I laugh and second, it really sunk in as to where we were– Firehouse Subs.

I totally remember finding some old YouTube videos of Warrior’s from 1995. (think red tank top and gym for anyone searching)– which I was NOT! I believe one of the songs in the background was a Firehouse song based on some comments I read. The guy who filmed Warrior actually mentioned how Warrior loved the song “Love of a Lifetime” by Firehouse.

He also said that Warrior wore it out on a cassette tape he always listened to. I couldn’t believe what I was reading! Believe it or not, I loved that song too and taped it on one of my blank tapes! Yes, that’s what us girls did back then and yes, I did also tape “The Warrior.” I also had a personal connection with the Firehouse song which made me remember and was overwhelmed again. Hopefully, he thought of Dana with that song since it’s such a great one. I did leave a comment on that YouTube page too!

The interesting thing is that when I went to look back on that video and find those comments for this blog (just to make sure)– I couldn’t find them. Maybe they were deleted but I know what I read. Very bizarre how they disappeared but great knowing that about Warrior and the song.

The last song reference was “Missing” by Everything but the Girl. Guess what? I taped that one too and was just stunned to hear it as well at Firehouse Subs. Some of the lyrics fit with Warrior back then and now– no judging me-hehe! I can’t even remember the last time I heard that song at all so between “Missing” and “The Warrior,” they didn’t seem to fit with the regular music the shop was playing. This DOES get more interesting……

While at the hair salon the next day ( the place to be lately!) I was sitting in the chair with my hair filled foil highlights. Not many people there that day and my stylist left me for about 20 minutes to let the color sink in. I was just casually reading a magazine and the speaker plays “Missing.” Are you kidding me? To hear a song TWICE within 24 hours and not even one I hear often is cosmic! Could Warrior have been helping out a little here with his energy? I’ve been known to get so many funny things as most of you are aware.

It’s highly possible and I do have a “vibe” with music. There is constant inspiration for new blogs so who knows? I always believe and even if he wasn’t orchestrating in some way, I do laugh and talk it thru every single time. I never know if he’s around for those types of moments, watching, or listening. Some times–yes, for sure! I do check in and share my stories while picturing him laughing so hard! My goosebumps are a sure sign but they’re not always present.

That’s my story for now so I hope you are laughing and possibly believing. The Universe does play little tricks and coincidences are not what they seem. We do need humor and whether you get this whole “spirit vibe” or not, be amused with whatever life throws your way. Put aside the serious for a bit and have some fun. I needed those jokes as my “business” side with the book became overwhelming last week. You can find all my music references in my book : Spirit and Belief. Until next time, try Firehouse Subs if you have those shops. They play really COOL music…

P.S. Maybe I’ll hear “Missing” again as a 3 count but I did get 3 songs connected to me!

P.P.S. I found my tapes! “Love of a Lifetime” is separate but “The Warrior” and “Missing” are on the same one! ( yes, it was planned…)

One more-/ GET THIS–/ I heard “Love of a Lifetime” ALSO twice within 2 days on Pandora, that never happens. The second time was on my birthday… ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿท๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Spirit and Belief News!

It’s my birthday so wanted this post to be all about the exciting events happening with my book Spirit and Belief! #thankyouWarrior

I was interviewed last night by my spiritual group — Harmonic Journeys for their podcast. I thank Mary for her friendship, support, and the conversation. Can’t wait to have it posted on here for all of you to listen! I shared my journey of spiritual gifts, Warrior stories, and where to find me. It was a great time (: I will post their link below if anyone is interested in them or the podcasts.

That was great practice for another interview I have coming soon for a nationally syndicated radio show! I was contacted by LitFire Publishing to participate in some marketing ideas for my book so am thrilled to share and educate all I can. Kate Delaney of America Tonight will be conducting the interview and I’ll post her info and bio below as well. She has interviewed people in sports, politics, (she spoke with Jesse Ventura about politics!) news, celebrities, and she is an author herself. Once that comes out, I’ll have it available and would love your feedback Warrior fans!

I am also participating in another Author Library Conference in October. This time, instead of a small table discussion with another author– there will be over 50! Very excited to converse with fellow writers and aspiring authors while sharing my spiritual journey. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get some Warrior “vibes” that day like last time!!!

What’s going on with YOU Warrior fans? I would love to hear your stories, fan memories, if you feel him spiritually, or anything you’d like to share. I know it takes guts to leave a comment but we’re all fans so no pressure! I just love hearing how he inspired others too besides me so FEEL FREE, no judging here. You can also connect with me on my YouTube page, amazon, or I do have an Amazon Author Page that is up and running. My other blog is linked to that but info for the book is available there too.

I wish you all great ultimate success with whatever you are working on in your life and continue crushing those goals! Mr. Warrior would want nothing less of you so do the work everyday. Let me know your Ultimate Warrior memories, come on— I KNOW you all have plenty!

Warrior Book Event

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing my book Spirit and Belief at beautiful Namaste Life Center. Theresa had it all so wonderfully inviting as I walked into that back room feeling so overwhelmed and humbled. Immediately, I felt at home and welcomed. Despite those in attendance being few, all listened, contributed, and supported me on my journey.

One woman related her time spent working at the restaurant in the old Richfield Coliseum here in Ohio and a wrestler she encountered. She asked me to describe the Ultimate Warrior and the years he was in the business. That was a great memory for me to describe! A wrestler with short hair (probably not Warrior, lol!) left a “script” for her as a gift! Wow, how exciting and fun getting that. Too bad she lost it after keeping it almost thirty years….. ๐Ÿ˜•

Another woman told me to “never doubt myself” as I don’t yet always am humbled while my lightheadedness began. Don’t worry since that’s a good sign of mine! She also said the hair on the back of her head was standing up as I was speaking. I asked if that was common for her and she truly believed Warrior was present. โค๏ธ I was filled with such gratitude once again.

The owner commented after I briefly shared the Cavs/Warrior basketball stories in my book. As most of you might know, numbers and dates are huge with me. I discussed June 16th being Warrior’s birthday and she interrupted. To summarize, as a child she was deeply affected by the movie Brian’s Song while crying buckets for a long time. She never forgot that and decided with her abilities to finally sign up for www.ancestry.com After much research, she found out Brian Piccolo whose life the movie is based upon, was a seventh cousin of hers. Yes, that’s quite far back but STILL a huge deal to be connected. Brian Piccolo died on June 16th, just sayin’… Who knows with Warrior but I will forever wonder.

It was such a great afternoon just hanging with these beautiful spiritual people and sharing our experiences together. They came to listen to me without judgment or disbelief. I got asked questions about meditation and what techniques work best. I felt so honored sharing what works for me. I have an entire blog post on www.spiritandbelief.com and a YouTube video on meditation so hopefully, she’ll get some ideas!

I was always so inspired with Warrior’s teachings and now others are inspired by mine. I never would’ve even guessed that about myself but am owning my stories with pride. Some have even had many more spiritual experiences than mine and I did get asked if I ever was scared. My answer was no based on my signs and trust. I gotta say though if I had something more extreme, that could change! Intimidated–sometimes but fearful, never.

It felt so natural speaking to these people while injecting my humor too! I mentioned Dana, Steve, and other newer experiences blogged about but not in the book. Can’t wait to possibly plan another event there as the energy was so positive with these like-minded people.

We can be inspired but then need to be the inspiration as Warrior has said. Just the other day, I ran into an old friend who I had lost touch with. After a few years of just connecting on Facebook, the hair salon brought us back together. We chatted in-between highlights as she proceeded to tell me how I always inspired her. Who, me? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. We always did sit together at PTA meetings but no idea of her admiration for me.

Some of our “situations” always connected us but she had been thinking of me lately. She even coined a new phrase: ” What would Kathy do?” I felt dazed yet so guided as my confidence inspires her. Wow… Talk about a Warrior Woman moment. She brought up past memories when I followed the beat of my own drum and did things my way. Why yes, I still do that but to be told of your influence doesn’t happen often– at least not to me. We will stay in touch as I admire her tenacity to juggle so much in her life all the time.

Be inspired but also be the inspiration even if you don’t think you can or are. Little moments surprise us but then the big planned ones can too. I had a big planned event and then an unexpected one that both overtook me with such joy. As I am looking up outside, I see a dragonfly. Oh, and those blue jay feathers keep coming just about everyday. It’s beautiful and humorous all at once. There’s that inspiration yet again warriors…….

Podcast, Vacation, and my SIGN …

Did any of you Warrior fans listen to Dana’s Total Warriors episode 3- Friday, July 13th? I certainly did and the spirituality topic was of course perfect for me. She had Lacey Evans of the WWE but also some special guests on a “ghost” centered podcast. Alia Moon is a tarot card reader and Herman Petrick an energy cleanser. I knew Dana believed in some aspects of “parts unknown.” I had no idea of her stories behind consulting a “ghost hunter” with their old house and her interest in the Tarot. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒต

To hear her tell the tales of Casa de Warrior and all its haunts thru the years made the whole hour and a half plus fly by like a rocket ship for me! ๐Ÿš€ My heart skipped a beat as she relayed the noises heard shortly after Warrior’s passing that made her and the girls believe. Warrior was their fierce protector who fought death’s battle and the evil spirits surrounding his family. I have never been a skeptic so it is phenomenal to me of our shared beliefs in the unexplained phenomena.

I don’t practice Tarot but do use other divination tools. I have an angel card deck and would love an animal one too! Whether one relates to this or not, we all must do what our heart calls us to do. I agree with Dana about it being positive and encouraging, not negative and discouraging. Clearing our space is what needs to be done sometimes and this has become more acceptable in society nowadays. If it works and makes you feel better, good for you. Always respect even if you don’t agree.

My next topic concerns our recent vacation to West Virginia. We went white water rafting, hiked up a HUGE mountain, and rode a tram with our dog. We even brought our cat on her first trip and she did great! Anyways, as we approached the WVA state sign, I noticed the Governor’s name. His name is Jim Justice. Ring a ๐Ÿ›Ž anyone? For all of you not familiar, that was the name Warrior used when he and Sting wrestled as the Freedom Fighters. Once again, a little chuckle from me… ๐Ÿ˜โ›ฐ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿšƒ

This brings me to the last story which involves my phone. Well, it just stopped working the day we were leaving. I had nothing. Just a dark screen with no buttons lighting up to show anything. I had it charging all night and tried another outlet but nothing worked. My husband looked up some info and tried a few things but I panicked… The apps I could get back but my mind went to photos and videos saved. I didn’t need it then but isn’t it amazing how reliant we are on technology these days? There wasn’t even one clock in our cabin, not one! Too remote for me…

The whole car trip back I tried REALLY hard to not think about any “what ifs” with the phone. An expert will help us at the store when we return so distract yourself already! I looked at some of my spiritual books or listened to music and for me, that was the best thing.

Finally, I decided to ask for help in a different way that was less panic-filled. I said to the Universe if I could have a sign– whatever it was but something just to reassure me all would be o.k. with my anxiety. I had to let it all go even though it was a challenge. When we got to the store a few hours later, the guy fixed it in no time and all was well. What a relief and yet such a silly thing to obsess over.

About an hour after that, I found three blue jay feathers in different parts of my yard. A great spiritual number and I always think of a three count!!! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป No signs on the road since patience needs to be practiced but these feathers brought tears and laughter. I first got a blue jay feather a few years ago when asking for validation from Warrior and now seem to have the most of those. That is my sign from him and after hearing Dana mentioning ladybugs ๐Ÿž with Indy, validation wins again my friends. I felt goofy for overreacting yet guided knowing my request was heard by receiving feathers since they are my main sign.

Tarot, energy cleansing, feathers, and anything you believe in will guide you along your spiritual path. I am so glad Dana had this as her topic on Total Warriors and so glad she is a warrior woman of Belief like me! Thank you Warrior for your life and protection always!!!!!!!

Warriorโ€™s Workout Wisdom

Here we are again with yet another funny story I hesitated to write. It concerns Steve Wilton who managed Warrior for several years and runs Ultimate Creations. This also concerns the power of words and that ability we all have internally when working with spirit energy. The title should be Warrior’s Workout Wisdom for Wilton so let’s blast off!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฃ

First off, one of the reasons I hesitated to share this experience was the fact that it involved Steve and is kinda personal. Besides Dana and the girls, Steve is right up there too and I would NEVER EVER disrespect or misrepresent ANYTHING pertaining to any of them. This story doesn’t do that but I never wanted to expose it in a misconstrued way. I firmly believe Steve and I would get along and in many ways, our respect for Warrior goes hand in hand. I do mention Steve in The Mysterious Batteries chapter of my book Spirit and Belief.

A few years back on twitter, Steve had just tweeted about a killer leg workout. He mentioned how much he’d probably hurt the next day, maybe overdoing it, not being able to move, etc. It was very similar to those words. I remember reading that and my reaction totally caught me off guard. I scoffed to myself and said: ( insert scoff) ” What a baby, suck it up, quit your crying!” Right away, I gasped and covered my mouth. Surely I would NEVER say that and much less to someone I don’t know! I wasn’t just thinking that but said it out loud which made it sound even worse. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿค

I have no idea how hard Steve works out or how he trains so who was I to make comments like that, even to myself? After sorta laughing, I really began thinking how those were Warrior comments~~~ not mine. I wanted so badly to tell Steve but had to plan the right approach. If I just tweeted that, he would be so offended and I wouldn’t blame him.

He would say: “Excuse me lady, but you have no idea what I just did and let’s see you do my workout!” No way could I risk talking to him like that and then an ultimate idea came to me. I would start with : ” Warrior would probably say…” and then go into the baby stuff. Well, I tweeted back and did see some comments but they were all from men as usual talking about fitness or what they do. Nothing like mine and no real mention of Warrior but maybe just asking if it was intense like his were back then.

I did get a tweet back and Steve said: ” That’s exactly what Warrior would say!” Just the fact that he responded was great in itself but his tweet validated my words. Most fans probably know how intense and extremely disciplined Warrior was and both Steve and Dana both have mentioned working out with him years ago. I never would’ve shared this story at the time but with them becoming more public on some topics, I feel like now I can.

That experience coincided with many of the other major Warrior events so for me, this was undisputed! This was not my first match with Warrior along those spiritual signs. Yes, you can have words sent to you that you’d never say and believe me since many of my writings happened like that. I was even thinking this blog might be done but then more stories I remembered needed to be told.

You can say people might’ve said the same thing as I did to Steve or that he could’ve responded back the same way but that didn’t happen. Once signs show up for you, it can become pretty consistent so pay attention!

Steve and I also discussed other topics besides Warrior on twitter and it was always so fun joking around with him. I know he joked with Warrior and now I am too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t imagine training with Warrior but I like to think without quitting that my body could take it– just ONE time only. I would probably throw up like Dana did but what an experience to have and always remember… ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ‘ Maybe his workout isn’t wisdom for everyone but this warrior girl will take anything~~~ even in spirit. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
